Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I'm surprised to see people saying they are too small. To my mind, the smalls that I bought are loose, even after being through the dryer once. I have a pair of smalls that I bought 30 years ago, and the unstretched waist on these is 6 inches larger than the older ones (which have probably been through the dryer also, several times). Also, as some have mentioned, there is are rough seams where the front and back panels meet (on both sides and at the bottom). The material is nice, with some stretch, and its not very thick.
I've added a picture. The red ones are the older ones.
Overall, I like them, except I find myself having to pull them back up once in a while.
These bikini briefs are a great underwear basic. They look very good: minimal styling, no showy waistband, nice colors. The fit is very comfortable. They are light weight fabric but well constructed and they give the kind of support a man expects in a brief. NOTE: the sizes run small. I have been wearing them for years and that is how they always have been. I normally wear a medium but wear a large in this style; so guys when you order these I recommend that you order one size larger than you normally do. ANOTHER NOTE: Recently Jockey discontinued this long time classic and offered a stretchy substitute that I do not like at all. I talked with Jockey customer service and they have reintroduced them online only for an unspecified time. I hope they decide to keep making them.
I've been buying Jockey Elance bikini underwear since the early '80s, and was chagrined to find that they're no longer sold at the Jockey outlet store (where they told me they'd been discontinued by the manufacturer) or at Macy's. So I was happy to find them at Amazon—and at a better price than through Jockey's online store.
Contrary to some other reviewers, I don't see any change in the quality nor is the fabric any different than before (though for a while they used a slightly ribbed material). I still prefer these to currently available similar underwear for the fit, style and lack of seams. They're super comfortable for everyday and even biking, hiking and table tennis, look good, and last a long time.
